AAMC Foundation Conference Travel Fellowships
Share |

 

Each year the AAMC is honored to award Conference Travel Fellowships for curators to attend our Annual Conference and Meeting. Since 2010 alone, over 200 individual Curatorial Travel Fellowships have been awarded. 
All applicants must commit to participating in the full Conference program (May 4-7, 2019 in New York City) at the time of application, including the all deadlines (non-negotiable), timelines, and travel. A stipend is granted as part of this Program to subsidize the travel requirements. Multiple curators from one museum are eligible, though individuals may only submit one application per year.
This year we were proud to offer two opportunities: the Conference Travel Fellowship for Junior Curators and the Art Fund & AAMC Conference Travel Fellowship for UK-based curators. 
 
CONFERENCE TRAVEL FELLOWSHIP FOR JUNIOR CURATORS
To be eligible for a Conference Travel Fellowship for Junior Curators, made possible through funding from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, applicants must self-identify as “junior curators,” defined as having less than 10 years of experience working at non-profit organizations, regardless of geographic location, with direct responsibility for works of art. Applications from curators without access travel funding or professional development support are particularly encouraged to apply. Multiple curators from one museum are eligible. A total of ten junior curators will be awarded fellowships in 2019.
The deadline for submitting an application for a 2019 Conference Travel Fellowship for Junior Curators has passed.
 
ART FUND & AAMC CONFERENCE TRAVEL FELLOWSHIPS
Art Fund & AAMC Conference Travel Fellowships are a collaboration between Art Fund and AAMC Foundation, to enable UK curators to travel, network and develop relationships with their international peers. To be eligible for an Art Fund & AAMC Conference Travel Fellowship, made possible through generous funding from Art Fund, applicants who live and work in the United Kingdom. Curators without existing strong ties to US partners and the overall larger international curatorial network are the ideal candidate(s) for this program. Applications from curators without access travel funding or professional development support are particularly encouraged. Multiple curators from one museum are eligible. A total of eight, UK curators will be awarded these fellowships in 2019.
Following the Conference, Art Fund & AAMC Conference Travel fellows will be invited to submit an application directly to Art Fund for Research & Development grants to continue to advance conversations and projects explored through their fellowship.
The deadline for submitting an application for a 2019 Art Fund & AAMC Conference Travel Fellowship has passed.
